Description Amos Kong 2012-11-30 07:12:31 UTC
Description of problem:

The pid/log filename of qemu-ga can be configured by /etc/sysconfig/qemu-ga.
But the new qemu-ga policy uses hardcode filenames, thing will be wrong if user changes the default pid/log filename.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-11-30 07:25:42 UTC
We have

filetrans_pattern(virt_qemu_ga_t, virt_qemu_ga_var_run_t, virt_qemu_ga_var_run_t,{ dir file } )
logging_log_filetrans(virt_qemu_ga_t, virt_qemu_ga_log_t, file )

which means if a user change it and it will be in the /var/run or /var/log then it will be created with the correct labeling.

We are not able to cover all scenarios. If a user change it to a different path then a local policy will be needed.
